MAMMOTH HOT SPRINGS, Wyo. — Two locations within Yellowstone National Park will be open to fishing year-round starting Nov. 1, the park said in a press release Thursday.

The two locations are the Madison River from the Wyoming–Montana state line to the park boundary near the West Entrance, and the Gardner River between Osprey Falls until the Gardener meets the Yellowstone River in Gardiner, Montana.

Current 2024 annual fishing permits will be valid from May 25 to Dec. 31. In 2025, the park said, fishing permits will last the full calendar year.

Other areas of the park will remain open to fish only through regular fishing season. Click here to view maps of the two year-round fishing areas.
